Installing a Wall Furnace

If you want to supplement the heating within your home, you may consider installing a wall furnace. Gas wall furnaces are capable of operating using natural gas, and this is an efficient and clean burning fuel.

Installing Your Wall Furnace

First and foremost you need to choose a gas wall furnace that is going to meet your needs. You need to determine how much area you have that needs to be heated. Are you attempting to heat a very large room or a relatively small one? This is going to determine what size of wall furnace you choose.

You need to install the gas wall furnace in the way that is specified by the manual. You want to keep the necessary amount of space between the wall and the furnace, and you want to make sure that the wall furnace is installed using a metal plate in order to produce the best and the safest results. The metal plate, when firmly attached to the wall and the furnace will ensure that the installation is sturdy.

The wall furnace should be installed on an exterior wall's inside and the vent cap needs to be flush against the exterior wall in order for you to get the most out of your wall furnace. This way, no moisture will get into the wall furnace.

Installing a Hot Water Heater: Will the Location Affect the Smell?

As you plan on installing a hot water heater, you may consider several different locations for the unit and their benefits. Luckily, the place you install the heater should not directly affect whether or not the water develops an odor. The thing that makes the water heater smell is the reaction to the sacrificial anode rod in the water heater. This can sometimes cause a bacteria that creates a bad smell in the hot water. If this happens, it can happen regardless of where the hot water heater tank is located.
